Paralleling The Fault Line

Early today, I decided I needed some fresh air so I loaded the camera, some munchies, and water on board the truck and headed south for Charleston Boulevard. Turning west, it’s a fairly short drive to exit the city proper.

I hadn’t been further south toward what is left of Bonnie Springs for a while so I went further south on Charleston Boulevard. This portion of the road parallels the fault line on the right, always a beautiful sight.

After having a look at where Bonnie Springs Ranch once stood, I’m fairly sure that even more of the buildings have been smashed and hauled away to the dump. These developers should be in said dump as well.

Here are a few photos from today taken very close to the dead ranch, there are tons of beautiful Joshua trees in this area, the high walls of the distant fault line make a great looking background at a mile or so away.

I also hit Calico Basin and, as usual, the Golden Mantled Ground Squirrels were out in force, scurrying every which way so I tossed just a very few bits of peanuts out for them. I should use bird feed seeds instead!

Desert Skies and Cute Critters

Here are five photos from yesterday. The Ground Squirrels are very difficult to photograph because I can’t focus fast enough most of the time, hence several critter photos were dropped into file thirteen. I want to thank two of my followers for pointing me to where I could still access the Classic editor this morning. As you may have gathered, I do have a tendency toward strong reactions to certain things. I am not proud of this, in fact, it’s a bit embarrassing. That said, how long will it be before the classic editor is trashed by WP?
